Eretz Israel is our unforgettable historic homeland...The Jews who will it shall achieve their State...And whatever we attempt there for our own benefit will redound mightily and beneficially to the good of all mankind. (Theodor Herzl, DerJudenstaat, 1896)

We offer peace and amity to all the neighbouring states and their peoples, and invite them to cooperate with the independent Jewish nation for the common good of all. The State of Israel is ready to contribute its full share to the peaceful progress and development of the Middle East.
(From Proclamation of the State of Israel, 5 Iyar 5708; 14 May 1948)

With a liberal democratic political system operating under the rule of law, a flourishing market economy producing technological innovation to the benefit of the wider world, and a population as educated and cultured as anywhere in Europe or North America, Israel is a normal Western country with a right to be treated as such in the community of nations.... For the global jihad, Israel may be the first objective. But it will not be the last. (Friends of Israel Initiative)

"Who is the Muslim Brotherhood?": New Video from a US Congresswoman's Office

Congresswoman Sue Myricks (Republican, North Carolina) takes a close interest in Islamist movements, particularly as they impact on the United States and the West. She wrote the foreword to David Gaubatz’s 2009 book Muslim Mafia (read the foreword here: and she founded the Congressional Anti-Terrorism Caucus.

In the wake of the current unrest in Egypt, Congresswoman Myrick’s office has produced this video, to counteract widespread ignorance regarding the Brotherhood’s aims and aspirations.

As well as viewing it, have a look at this rather disturbing report in Israel Today (hat tip: Ian G)


  1. This video is ignorant double-talk. Islam is a religion of Law. Obey the law and perhaps you will find favour with Allah. All religion works that way.

    Relationship is based on trust or faith. In Judeo-Christianity, YHWH seeks out sinful Adam and prepares a plan of redemption. It is faith that guarantees favour. Abraham was the friend of God, Moses saw YHWH face-to-face, David was a man after God's own heart and so on. In Habbakuk, and in three places in the NT, we are told that the just/righteous shall live by faith.

    The Law is a guide to righteousness and not the means of procuring it. This is why sacrifice is necessary.

    When Law becomes the means of procuring favour then people become self-righteous. Sadly, both Judaism and Christianity are regularly afflicted by this. It is built-in to Islam.

    Finally, the acid test. Look at the Founders.

    The Islamist is simply a more thorough and committed Muslim who models his or her life on Mohammed.

    The video also makes a very dangerous distinction by suggesting that religion and politics should not mix. Islamic extremism is being used subtly to advance a secular humanist agenda that would keep committed Jews and Christians out of politics.

  2. Sorry, but islam and islamist are the same! How can they be separated? Sharia law tells mozlems how to behave every moment of their waking lives. No mozlem is a true believer in izlam unless they follow every word of the koran.

    There are people who do not follow all the tenets of izlam: they are not considered proper mozlems.
    As RecepTayyip Erdogan, Prime minister of Turkey recently said: "There is no moderate izlam, only izlam".

  3. Ian, thanks for the link to the "Israel Today" article - have added it to the blogpost.
